Book Description

Powerfully and beautifully portrays a bygone Jewish culture.

The story about the life of the Jews in Eastern Europe which has come to an end in our days is what I have tried to tell in this essay. I have not talked about their books, their art or institutions, but about their daily life, about their habits and customs, about their attitudes toward the basic things in life, about the scale of values which directed their aspirations....

"In this period our people attained the highest degree of inwardness.... It was the golden period in Jewish history, in the history of the Jewish soul."
from The Earth Is the Lord's
